Seven-race maiden. Has been a little disappointing in a number of starts since seasonal debut in September. Others look open to more improvement.
Distance winner comes here on a hat-trick of wins following victories at Fairyhouse and Thurles last month. Life more difficult from revised mark but another bold bid looks to be on the cards.
Gelding by Westerner. Poor form in three runs over hurdles when last seen 18 months ago and only of interest on this comeback if market is positive.
Seven-race maiden not disgraced in a number of starts over hurdles since September where he may be flattered by his finishing positions. Cannot be discounted in first-time cheekpieces.
Off the mark at the 10th time of asking in a Tramore 2m5½f on soft to heavy ground in October off an 8lb lower mark. Beaten since over 2m at this track last month but has the ability to make a bold bid.
Career best effort on his third start over hurdles in a Wexford handicap finishing third of 14 on heavy ground when last seen in October. Likely to be a leading player.
Without a win now in eight starts over hurdles including a couple of heavy defeat in handicap company. Makes limited appeal in this event but any market move would be worth noting.
27-race maiden still looking for breakthrough success in 17 starts over hurdles. Did not look a winner in waiting on return to action at this venue over 2m last month.
Gelding by Milan, yet to hit the frame in seven career starts over hurdles. Well held in all starts and looks likely to struggle again on these terms.
Four-race maiden over hurdles and not seen on a racecourse since finishing down the field at Clonmel over 2m2½f in March last year. Has a bit to prove at present.
Seven-race maiden, never nearer in four starts over timber since July. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
10-race maiden clearly flattered by her second of 15 beaten 3L at Ballinrobe in September. Not in good enough form in a couple of starts since to be considered here.
Limited promise since return from 635 days off in the spring finishing down the field in four of his five starts over timber. Needs to bounce back in a big way to have a say here.
